DURECT Corporation is an emerging specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the development of pharmaceutical systems based on its proprietary drug delivery platform technologies to treat chronic debilitating diseases and enable biotechnology products. These platform technologies include the SABER™ Delivery System (a patented and versatile depot injectable useful for proteins, peptides and small molecule delivery), the ORADUR™ sustained release oral gel-cap technology (an oral sustained release technology with several potential abuse deterrent properties), the TRANSDUR™ transdermal patch technology, the DURIN™ Biodegradable Implant (drug-loaded implant system) and the MICRODUR™ Biodegradable Microparticulates (microspheres injectable system).

DURECT has five disclosed on-going development programs of which four are in collaboration with pharmaceutical partners. DURECT’s strategy is to capitalize on the wealth of opportunities afforded by our proprietary platform technologies in three ways: To internally develop promising products based on our technologies To partner some of our product opportunities with development and/or commercialization partners at appropriate stages along the development timelines; and To make our technologies, along with our pre-clinical and clinical development expertise available to partners with the desire to develop proprietary extended or controlled release formulations of a wide range of molecules.
